Plans For 200 Homes At Weymouth Stadium Revealed

Wessex Stadium 1-1

The last in a pair of public consultations on the relocation of Weymouth Football Club has been held.

Dozens of people turned up to St Aldhelm's Church last night (Wednesday 5th December) to look at plans for 200 homes on the site.

Wessex LLP - who own the land around the Bob Lucas - has proposed the move.

Chickerell Town Council says they won't allow the ground to be used for anything but leisure and members unanimously voted against plans for any residential development around or on the stadium site, last month.

The first Public Consultation took place earlier in the week.

Public feedback will help shape a final design before a planning application is submitted.

In a statement, Weymouth Football club has tried to assure fans and local residents they're listening to all the options on the table and nothing has been decided yet. They say any new stadium must be superior to the existing one.
